Pushed above the 12ema (white line) and recent candle resistance/previous "lower high" at 438.20; looking like a daily trend change back to bulls, but some follow thru needed for confidence that we're not setting a double top against recent futures highs (439.56 from 3/1 futures and 439.72 high from yesterday) 439.72 the high from yesterday and first resistance
445.30 the 200 day MA

[BRIEFING.COM] S&P futures vs fair value: +0.10. Nasdaq futures vs fair value: -29.30.
The S&P 500 futures trade roughly in-line with fair value as the market awaits the results of cease-fire talks between Russia and Ukraine.
WTI crude futures briefly topped $116 per barrel overnight as Russian forces reportedly captured the southern city of Kherson, but prices have since retraced to $113.14 per barrel (+$2.48, +2.2%). Energy stocks are benefiting from the elevated oil prices in pre-market action.
Software stocks Snowflake (SNOW 210.35, -54.34, -20.5%), Veeva Systems (VEEV 206.85, -23.77, -10.3%), and Okta (OKTA 170.03, -12.67, -6.9%), on the other hand, are showing weakness after providing underwhelming-to-disappointing guidance. Their weakness could be restraining interest in other growth stocks.
Elsewhere, the Treasury market is behaving relatively quiet following three straight days of huge moves. The 2-yr yield is down two basis points to 1.50%, and the 10-yr yield is unchanged at 1.87%. The U.S. Dollar Index is up 0.2% to 97.57.
